Open Educational Resources

Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching and learning materials that are licensed to allow others to use, share, and adapt without having to ask permission. Benefits of openly sharing content include wider dissemination of the work, ease of localization and translation, and increased collaboration.

Utilizing open practices goes along with the MEAS principle: “We design all that we do to be shared and we make it discoverable by everyone everywhere.”  

Please see the resources below to learn more about the process of developing open resources. For more information, please contact Gwyn Shelle at heyboerg@msu.edu.
